Tyler, as a professional, has worked alongside the United States Soccer Federation, serving as the Director of Sporting Analytics. However, he left his role in 2021 to join the French side AS Monaco as their Head of Sporting Technology.

Tyler, similar to his partner, has a reserved social media presence and prefers to keep his private life under the covers.
